Hey lains, I haven't really read a book for fun in a while, and I'm thinking I want to get back into the cyberpunk genre. What are your favorite /cyb/ books?

I loved Neuromancer(obviously) but I read some of Gibson's more recent work, Pattern Recognition, and I really hated it. I really like Peter Watts' books, because they're very technical. People shit on Maelstrom but I thought it was great.

I recenly finished "Software" by Rudy Rucker, It is book #1 of his series, I don't plan on continuing it, but it was good.

I could add more, but that might just be overload. There are a few nice short stories I've come across, too, like Taklamakan by Sterling, or Unwirer by Stross and Doctorow. Sources for all are attached.

I loved 2312, along with the Mars trilogy(although Blue Mars got boring after a while)

could you post some link to this book, I could not find it on any site

I also really like the books from Peter Watts. I understand that you already read the rifter trilogy, but how about Blindsight and Echopraxia? Also very great books.

Other suggestions:
The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson
The Silo trilogy by Hugh Howey (not as cyber, but has a very interesting post-apocalyptic setting)
Little Brother and Homeland by Cory Doctorow

Other non-cyberpunk recommendations:
The Hollow Earth by Rudy Rucker
Space Odyssey Series by Arthur C.Clarke
Solaris by Stanislaw Lem
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami (not cyberpunk at all, but very interesting read)
